The other day I saw a leaf bug (katydid) on a bicycle seat at my apartment complex. Not my bicycle seat, but one that I pass by on the way to the parking lot. I was enchanted and took a couple of pictures. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen one before or at least one so big.

And then, on Monday, I saw another one (or perhaps the same one), perched on the wall above the door to my apartment.

It is as if the insect noticed my fascination and picture taking and decided to grace my threshold with its presence. A blessing, if you will. A benediction.

Not sure how it figured out which door was mine, but if I’m going to ascribe such intentions to an insect, I suppose I can hand-wave that part.
